At Chemlink, we are passionate about formulating with safe, environmentally-friendly ingredients. So we’re pleased to be able to share more information about an effective yet non-toxic disinfectant – UniBlue®.
February’s outbreak of equine influenza, resulting in the lockdown of 174 stables and the shutdown of race meetings across the country, reminded us that we live in a world where the need to fight infection chains is more relevant than ever. That’s where UniBlue® comes in – a universal disinfectant product that is safe on animals, our skin and the environment as well as being compliant with ECHA regulations.
What is UniBlue®?
UniBlue® is a revolutionary broad-spectrum safe, yet highly effective, disinfection product with a Simplified Authorisation (UK). It targets:
- Bacteria – both gram positive and gram negative (including superbugs)
- Viruses – both envelope and non-envelope (including polio, adeno, and norovirus)
- Fungi – including yeast
- Mycobacteria – including terrae, fortium, and much more
- Spores – kills Clostridium difficile, and boosted* product kills Bacillus subtilis, and Bacillus cereus
*UniBlue can be boosted by the addition of ascorbic acid at point of use only. If you’re interested in boosting UniBlue please contact our team who will be able to assist in your specific formulation requirements.
As a universal disinfectant, UniBlue® replaces many conventional biocides. This new technology is based on natural organic acids, as used in the food industry.
Whilst being non-toxic, non-hazardous and safe on skin and the environment, nonetheless it has rapid, powerful, broad spectrum kill action.
